Whiskey Sour

Probably the most well-known of all the egg white cocktails is the whiskey sour. It’s a simple recipe using whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and one egg white. The ingredients are vigorously shaken together, creating a creamy white layer on top of the sweet and sour cocktail.

Gin Fizz Cocktail

Gin Fizz

The gin fizz is bright and bubbly with the silky texture of shaken egg white to top it all off. It’s similar to the whiskey sour but uses gin instead and is topped with club soda. The cocktail is a delicate drink with a citrus-forward flavor.

The Clover Club

You’ll fall in love with the beautiful balance of tartness and sweetness in this cocktail. It has gin, raspberry syrup, lemon juice, and an egg white. You can buy premium raspberry syrup, but the cocktail will taste even better if you use homemade syrup.

Gin Sour

Unsurprisingly, the gin sour is similar to the whiskey sour. The whiskey is swapped for gin, and the lemon juice for lime juice. A gin sour has a more tart and biting flavor than a sweet whiskey sour. It’s an ideal egg white cocktail for someone who enjoys gimlets or gin and tonics.

Amaretto Sour

An amaretto sour is a potent drink with two liquors: amaretto and bourbon or whiskey. It has a prominent flavor that combines the warmth of the alcohol with the sweetness of maple syrup and the tartness of lemon juice. To elevate the richness, it includes a few drops of Angostura bitters. The foamy egg white topping helps mitigate the forceful taste of the other ingredients.

Frothy Orange Creamsicle Cocktail

This cocktail has the sweet, citrus flavor of an orange muted by the creaminess of the egg white. The combination of egg white and a splash of vanilla extract brings the creamsicles flavors forward and will amaze you.

White Lady

This elegant egg white cocktail has an herbal, citrus flavor that is distinct and smooth on the palate. It’s a gin cocktail with lemon juice, simple syrup, Cointreau, and thyme sprigs. And, of course, an egg white. It comes out a soft cream color with pure white foam on top, offering a silky texture and subtle flavor.

White Dragon Tequila Cocktail

Not only does this cocktail have a fancy name, but the flavors are elegant and straightforward. If the orange creamsicle cocktail appeals to you but seems too sweet, try this simpler drink. It has a subtle orange flavor from the Cointreau liqueur, with the same creamy egg white and a dash of lemon juice for tartness. 

Blood Orange Pisco Sour

For other orange-y drinks, check out this tasty blood orange pisco sour. You achieve the succulent flavor with blood orange juice and lime juice, which elevate one another. Pisco is a white brandy that complements the creamy egg white for a well-rounded drink.

Mezcal Sour with Strawberries and Ginger

For a distinct and complex flavor, make this mezcal sour that combines the smokiness of mezcal with the delicate foaminess of an egg white. The strawberries give it a sweet, jammy flavor, and the ginger cuts through everything else to give you a hint of spice. 

Orange Campari Vodka Sour Cocktail

This cocktail combines fresh orange juice with Campari for a deep citrus flavor. The vodka and lemon juice lightens the taste, and a drizzle of maple syrup adds a rich sweetness. Finally, the fluffy egg white gives it a satin texture for an impeccable drinking experience. 

A classic Whiskey Sour cocktail, meticulously crafted in an old-fashioned glass. This timeless drink exhibits a smooth, creamy texture with a frothy top, indicative of its whiskey, lemon juice, and egg white composition. A slice of orange and a cherry are used as garnish, adding a touch of color and elegance. The cocktail is set on a vintage wooden bar counter, with a background of a dimly lit, traditional bar setting. The atmosphere is cozy and nostalgic, with shelves of various whiskeys and soft, ambient lighting.
